Category Archives: Updates

You can find general updates here.  Everything not related to releases, I post here.  I also put fan contributions in this category.

Sometimes I go through offline periods.  I might get depressed, change apartments or get sick.  Life is often unpredictable.  For that reason, I cover darkness in the updates section.

Occasionally, I go through very exciting periods.  Maybe I’m purchasing a new guitar.  What if I’m winning some Grammy awards?  I like to improve my room’s acoustics sometimes.  Learn about the excitement here.

Random stuff likes to present itself.  If I see a cute squirrel I might share it.  Sometimes I eat food so delicious that everyone must know.  The update category knows no bounds.

Another cool feature I add to the update category is fan feedback.  You can give me ideas for a new series.  I spotlight fan art here.  Tell me if you’re a vetted Hexspa fan so I can share your work with my audience.

100 Subscribers!!!

100 Subscribers!!!

Ok, 98 fml …99… I currently have 98 subs on the Hexspa YouTube channel.  Kind of exciting.  My first video was uploaded around late 2009.  I started with a namesake channel but I deleted all the stuff off of it so now it’s just Hexspa. I remember when I made my first penny through adsense.  It was a cool moment.  I’m not raking in millions just yet but maybe

My Last Video :(

My Last Video :(

It’s over: my last video. 2016 has come and gone like the heartbreaker he was and now my last video. It was a productive year for Hexspa.  I moved to a new apartment, released the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 1 and made about 10 Dance tracks under the 8 Bar Embryo playlist. We also launched One True Path Acoustics – subscribe over there for all your acoustics stuff.  We’ll be

What is Hexspa?  Part 5

What is Hexspa? Part 5

Parts one, two, three and four. So it’s come to this. It was the EDM revolution.  America remembered it could dance.  How fitting that Dubstep had no identifiable dance.  Good time to shake off the rust I suppose. Working in the Pro Audio department of the Stupidly American music store, I was surrounded by a DJ and a grad of Pyramind.  Between these two “colleagues” and being lambasted while

What is Hexspa? Part 4

What is Hexspa? Part 4

Parts one, two, and three. So there I was.  2008.  A MySpace girlfriend and a new name.  Service weapon of choice: guitar and voice.  MOS: Songwriter. In 2009 I went to school for music.  For three weeks.  It was a tad shameful of an experience and I’ll leave it at that.  Basically I didn’t want to be “just” a guitar player.  I wanted moar. Moar I got.  Back in

What is Hexspa? Part 3

What is Hexspa? Part 3

Part one and part two. It started with MySpace.  It always used to start with MySpace. In the Army I met a girl.  Late 2007 we moved into a roommate situation.  I was preparing for a music school in Hollywood (deliberately not naming it).  I’d pushed back my entrance for whatever reason (slacker).  So, early 2008 I was considering what I’d publish my music as.  The motto for the battalion

What is Hexspa? Part 2

What is Hexspa? Part 2

Continued from Part 1. Failure is the shit out of which new fruit grows.  I should start an orchard. The band was falling apart.  People were leaving, new lineups weren’t as solid and my musicianship needed work.  A chance encounter during an altered state of mind was the first clue as to what my future would hold. It was the first time I’d ever seen one in real life.

What Is Hexspa? Part 1

What Is Hexspa? Part 1

Hexspa is death. Actually, Hexspa is my life.  In a sense Hexspa is death since I’ll probably be doing it until then.  Hexspa is my musical activity.  Music=life, life=death; Hexspa=death. The seeds of Hexspa can be traced to my first years as a violin student beginning in second grade.  A local orchestra came to Lincoln Elementary School in Brookfield, Il around 1989.  The idea was that they had teamed
